General Studies - Health Sciences - A.A. Degree (Transfer)

Health Sciences General Study program at HCC.
If you’re unsure of your pathway but have an interest in health sciences, HCC’s general studies curriculum is an excellent way to explore the possibilities.

The general studies area of study is intended for students who are uncertain of their career plans or desire two years of a broad, general college education. This curriculum has been adapted to allow students to explore several different subject areas.

The General Studies–Health Sciences Emphasis program has been designed specifically for students whose interests are more in the area of health sciences. Those who plan their course sequences with faculty advisors may prepare for either transfer or employment. Students are advised to check the requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer.

As a graduate, you should be able to:

  1. Describe the basic organization of healthcare and public health systems, and the contributions of health professionals.
  2. Discuss concepts related to health promotion and disease prevention.
  3. Apply principles of ethical reasoning as related to health and well-being.
Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
